The winter following my college graduation I was inspired to knit by some of my piano students. I figured that if small children could knit then I could too!
I went on vacation with my family over Christmas break that year and started knitting using various sized looms and 'graduated' to needles a few months later. I haven't gone on any trip except my honeymoon without packing at least 2 knitting projects since then!
A week ago, one of my former roommates taught me how to crochet and I've discovered a new wonderful craft!! I simply cannot believe I was in the dark for so long!
